People who attend Podcast Movement 2018, which will take place in Philadelphia on July 23-26, will have a very special opportunity. Attendees will be able to pitch their idea to Audible, who will be accepting submissions from Podcast Movement participants.
Audible is primarily looking for narrative audio with a strong sense of story and a comedic bent. They’re not looking for comedians in a room talking to one another. The pitch should have direction and structure, clearly embrace an audio-first / audio-only experience, and they’re looking to hear about a full and funny world.
Audible is also open to other genres, sketch, one-person shows, personal memoirs, and listening experiences that break new ground in audio entertainment.
To submit and idea, you need:
- 1-2 page pitch treatment
- Resume/bio for any attached talent
- Optional: link to audio sample of proposed series, audio sample of past work and/or sample scripts or related writing.
Submissions must be received by July 13, 2018. A Short List will be selected by July 20, and participants will be invited to pitch their idea to audible executives live at Podacast Movement on July 25, 2018.
As always, it would be a good idea to take a look at the Submission Agreement for full details. It includes, among many other important details, information about what rights submitters give to audible over the content they submitted.
